I hope this Large Tenmoku Charger is of interest.
It is unmarked. Does anyone have any ideas?

I don't think it's Mashiko ware, or Japanese. Maybe a Winchcombe trained potter. Without a mark it'll be difficult to ID

As Naomi suggests there is a look of current Winchcombe Pottery as far as the glazes and the stoneware body are concerned but, unless someone pops by and says...... I made that, it's unlikely to be able to be attributed in any potter.

Like the other charger you have listed with the squiggle mark on the back, this is also not tenmoku.

I can't imagine that it was made anywhere other than the UK and certainly not in Japan.

Another vote for a Winchcombe trained potter from me. Bernardo you have a good eye. What you are showing us is are nice pieces that would display very well. But you are just aiming too high in your attributions.

Barnardo what strikes me about nearly all the items that you have posted is that all have a strong Winchcombe flavour to them, Now Winchcombe was founded in 1926 by Michael Cardew in 1926. It is Michael Cadrew's name that is always associated it. Yet the true driving force behind Winchcome is the hugely underestimated Ray Finch. Who bought it from Cardew and ran in post-WW2 for over 50 years.
If you have not read it, then there is a good book on Winchcombe pottery by Ron Wheeler. Readily available on Amazon. Most of Ron Wheeler's important collection was sold at Mallams in December 2022. Below is a link to those pieces. Scroll down from lot 500, and there are about 100 lots of his Winchcombe collection.

I see. I won't get caught up in the specific maker.
But would be lovely to think I have a Ray Finch in my collection.

I'm off to research what is Tenmoku.

Its not by Ray Finch. 
And it’s not Winchcombe Pottery, but possibly by a Winchcombe trained potter who set up their own studio.

It was not made by Ray Finch, as Naomi says.

Rule 1 should be - never jump to the conclusion that you want it to be without any evidence to back it up.

I've probably inavertdly collected a fair amount of Winchombe.. perhaps just because the abundance of availability.
They were obviously very prolific.
I had previously found it all quite uninspiring, but It amazes me how our tastes change,
their browns and greens I used to find quite dull, I now see as stylish..
(middle age now you see)

I have sold on some Sidney Tustin in the past which I regret since a new appreciation for slipware!
That was from reading about Leach and Hamada's revival of the technique.

Fair to say that, the more I learn about the art, culture and inter connectivity of the potters,
the more drawn I am to owning pottery for the history that goes with it.
Iv'e gone ahead and ordered  Winchcombe Pottery: The Cardew-Finch Tradition paperback.A nice big Studio Charger. Unmarked. Ex-Winchcombe potter maybe  1f44d

Thanks Philpot for link also, was certainly an impressive collection.
